Apple revealed a much-needed upgrade to the MacBook Pro line-up in 2021.

Revamped 14in and 16in models use the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, delivering big performance and power efficiency improvements compared to earlier Intel-based model (and even the M1). Both devices got a redesign, with plenty of ports and even a notch.

Given how long it’s been since both devices launched, it’s no surprise to see regular discounts. Here’s where to find the best deals in the US and UK.

How much did the new MacBook Pro 14in and 16in cost at launch?

At launch in October 2021, here’s how much Apple (and many other retailers) were selling the 14in and 16in MacBook Pros for:

Here’s a lis

MacBook Pro 14 (M1 Pro 8-core CPU, 14-core GPU, 16GB memory, 512GB storage) – £1,899 / $1,999MacBook Pro 14 (M1 Pro 10-core CPU, 16-core GPU, 16GB memory, 1TB storage) – £2,399 / $2,499MacBook Pro 16 (M1 Pro 10-core CPU, 16-core GPU, 16GB memory, 512GB storage) – £2,399 / $2,499MacBook Pro 16 (M1 Pro 10-core CPU, 16-core GPU, 16GB memory, 1TB storage) – £2,599 / $2,699MacBook Pro 16 (M1 Max 10-core CPU, 32-core GPU, 32GB memory, 1TB storage) – £3,299 / $3,499

Should I buy refurbished?

For the biggest discounts on the 14in and 16in MacBook Pros, you’ll have to go refurbished. Some might see this as another word for ‘second hand’, but in reality many of these devices have barely been used at all.

Remember, if a product has been used for demonstration purposes or returned as an unwanted gift, retailers must classify them as ‘refurbished’ despite looking and performing just like new. It’s true that there are situations where a fault has been fixed, so it’s worth checking the description for any device you’re considering buying. 

If you’re looking for a cheap MacBook Pro, the first place to look is the  Apple Refurbished Store. But the likes of MusicMagpie and Hoxton Macs are great alternatives.
